Lucien Steiner leads an assault on the olog lich’s ally at the Seven Sisters stones. The Harts and allies take him down, along with the lich himself, after destroying the constructs that formed his phylactery. In an (eventually successful) attempt to free the souls of locals trapped in puppets, four of the party fall. The Dwarves of Borthawr from the Dragons are honoured for their part in proceedings. Theo D’Arby steps down as regent after a pointed message from the Pendragon leaves him with only one eye, and Benedict Uther Karlennon steps up to take the position, an action clearly sanctioned by the Ancestors when he is able to draw Excalibur from its stone.
